Thank you to everyone who came along to last night's BP Big Screening of Manon. It was a superb night: wonderful performances, beautiful weather and lovely crowds (over 6,000 in Trafalgar Square.)

Don't forget, if you enjoyed last night, please come back for Madam Butterfly on 4 July and Cinderella on 13 July.

Top row: crowds start to arrive, backstage with the Trafalgar Square lions, inside the Main House at half time.
Second row: sun starts to set, programme and poncho – essential kit, Des Grieux dances out his love for Manon to hushed crowds.  Zeb Soanes – compère for the night.
Third row: al fresco dining – picnics at the Screens

bpbigscreens @ @richardlebus I can't think of a finer way to enjoy a Wednesday night!

bpbigscreens @3become1 Maybe something grabbed on the way to the last train. But my soul is fed!

EowinKenobi Nerea Fernández  @RoyalOperaHouse BEST BALLET EVER. (I didn't even need 140 characters).

Barbara_KL Barbara L  @RoyalOperaHouse I saw this wonderful ballet at the Royal Opera House. Though, good seats are expensive. Thank you for showing it for free!

tiffanyhyu Most beautiful couple ever RT @RoyalOperaHouse Alina Cojocaru & Johan Kobborg have recently got engaged Congrats!#ballet

JudithFlanders Wow. @RoyalOperaHouse 's Ricardo Cervera so wonderful as Lescsaut, maybe he won't have to die in Act 2. #alternativeworldmanon

JudithFlanders Serious question: is @RoyalOperaHouse 's Alina Cojocaru the greatest dancer I've ever seen? #verypossibly
